Pickering Barn Wedding: Kimi+Armand

Pickering Barn Wedding: Rick+Anna Photography

Although we were worried about rain in the days leading up the Kimi+Armand’s wedding, their day couldn’t have been more perfect.  Clear blue skies and a gorgeous and hot Pacific Northwest day brought together their friends and families at the gorgeous Pickering Barn in Issaquah.  This entire day was filled with so much joy – from the girls getting ready together in the morning (and pausing multiple times to hug Kimi and cry happy tears with her) – to the dancing in the barn that night…the smiles never left Kimi+Armand’s faces the entire day.  We absolutely loved all of their details, from Kimi’s incredible tulle wedding gown to the groomsmen’s shoes, everything was exquisitely planned and the day flowed perfectly thanks to the talent of Love Blooms Wedding and Event Design.  Kimi+Armand, we cannot thank you enough for the awesome privilege of photographing both your engagement and your gorgeous wedding day.  Your love for each other is a beautiful thing, and we’ve loved every single second that we’ve spent with you guys.  Thanks to you and your families for being so wonderful – we simply couldn’t be happier for you!  Love, R+A

Jennifer+Camerin seriously chose the most incredible location for their engagement session a couple of weeks ago…amazing light, tree tunnels, and a supermoon that rose right after sunset to top it all off!  What struck me the most about these two was how incredibly comfortable they were together…they laughed and danced their way through this shoot and it was simply magical.  Jennifer+Camerin are getting married in Minneapolis next year and their amazing Minneapolis photographer (Penny Photographics) referred them to us – and we already can’t wait to see their wedding images!  You guys, thank you so much for a magical evening and for hiking through the woods and lying the wheat field for us – can’t wait to share your full gallery with you tonight!  Love, R+A

Thanks to Ashley of Berryessa Photography for second shooting this session with Anna!

This afternoon we’re so excited to be sharing some of our favorites from Allie+Alex’s downtown Seattle engagement session!  These two are simply adorable, and so comfortable together, and it was so much fun exploring Kerry Park (where they got engaged!!!) and the waterfront with them on a warm and sunny Seattle evening.  We absolutely cannot wait to photograph their amazing wedding next year!

And thank you to Ashely of Berryessa Photography for second shooting with Anna!

Willows Lodge Wedding: Sal+Celeste

Willows Lodge Wedding: Sal+Celeste

44 years ago a young and beautiful exchange student from Chile came to the United States as a 17 year old high school student.  And she met a boy.  He impressed her with long drives in his fast car, he couldn’t believe how beautiful she was, and as the months went by Sal fell head over heels in love with Celeste – the beautiful Chilean girl that he knew he couldn’t live without.  They were inseparable.  They did everything together and spent every moment together.  And then, one morning, the day they had been dreading finally arrived.  As Celeste’s plane backed out from the terminal Sal imprinted the vision of her smile and wave into his heart, and then he felt it shatter into a million pieces.  There was no internet back in those days, and Chile was in the middle of a revolution.  And so for the next 40 years he accepted the fact that she was lost forever, and they had no communication.  He eventually got married and raised a beautiful family with children of his own, not knowing that Celeste was doing the same thing over 6,000 miles away.  And throughout all of those years not a day went by that Celeste didn’t cross his mind…

And then, 41 years later, with no contact over all that time, Sal found Celeste on Facebook.  ”Are you the girl that was an exchange student from Chile back in 1970?” he messaged her.  And he couldn’t believe it when she wrote him back with confirmation, saying “Yes, I am, just a little bit older,” because he had never stopped loving her over all those years.  They reunited, and we had the privilege of documenting their day as they stood in front of their families and friends and became husband and wife – and he told her with tears in his eyes that she looked even more beautiful than she had looked back in 1970…

And thank you to the incredible creative team that came together to make this gorgeous wedding come to life…

Anthony’s in Edmonds Wedding:  Allison+Nick

We were introduced to Allison+Nick by another one of our amazing 2014 couples, Liza+Jordan (Nick is Jordan’s brother), and it was so incredible to work with their family twice in a 2 month period!!

On a beautiful morning, completely enveloped with love by their family and friends, Allison+Nick tearfully recited their vows on a terrace overlooking the water – and it was simply perfect.  We absolutely love that they chose to have a brunch wedding, and Anthony’s in Edmonds was the perfect location with the most amazing staff!  To be completely honest, I don’t think we’ve ever cried so many happy tears at a wedding before, especially during the toasts…there wasn’t a dry eye in the room.  Allison+Nick are the type of couple that inspire us.  They inspire us to love deeper, to smile bigger, and to laugh together more often – and we’re thankful for that.  As we prepared this blog post, we were completely struck by how darn happy these two were on their wedding day, and by Allison’s beautiful smile that never left her face:)  You guys, we can’t thank you enough for the privilege of documenting your beautiful and emotional wedding day!  Thank you for making us feel like part of the family (again) and for the awesome opportunity of photographing your love.  Love, R+A
